today was bike day!
bike stuff of all sorts today.....got lee's bike back from paint, i still have to headbadge and chase'n'face the whole she-bang, and i don't think it's gonna take stickers, as the paint isn't smooth but had a slight texture. it's for touring, so it's gonna look just fine with a coat of dirt. it's called "lava". also, got jim's bike together. he's gonna be stoked! he's looking for maximum comfort, and i think this rig is gonna deliver, the geometry puts his head in a very relaxed position and it's based on a long, stable touring geometry. boy, i gotta say, the 2008 xt gruppo shifts great. built the wheels and everything on this rig but the paint. the green really lights up in the sun with a gorgeous gold undertone and sparkle. and, got denise's 650b brazed up. it's gonna be sweet, the lugged pacenti crown fork is going on it. see you all soon, i gotta make salsa and take a shower! steve.
